Part 6 of CRN’s Big Data 100 includes a look at the big data technology startups that solution providers should know about.

Ahana

Top Executive: Co-Founder, CEO Steven Mih

Ahana, which just launched in 2020, is one of several companies building big data systems around Presto, the high-performance distributed SQL query engine for distributed data residing in a variety of sources.

The startup, based in San Mateo, Calif., develops PrestoDB-based ad-hoc analytics software. In late 2020 the company launched the Ahana Cloud for Presto managed service and earlier this year expanded the service with new data lake caching and security capabilities.

Ahana, founded in 2020, raised $4.8 million in seed round funding last year from investors that included GV (formerly Google Ventures).
